• Ryan Zimmerman, playing through a sore right shoulder that necessitated a cortisone shot last week, has put together two straight good games, going 2-for-4 with an RBI Sunday against the Orioles and hitting an RBI double in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Rockies.

Johnson expects him to keep playing through the pain.

"I pretty much know if something's wrong, whether he tells me or not," Johnson said. "But I try not to talk about it because I want to feel like it's good."

Zimmerman was two hits shy of the 1,000-hit mark entering Tuesday's game against the Rockies.

• Bryce Harper is hitting .288 in June, but is just .184 in his last 10 games. His three strikeouts Monday tied for second-most this season.

• Since Sept. 12, the Nationals have a 31-17 mark on the road, the best road percentage of any team in the Majors in that span.
